Upon close observation, one will come to the conclusion that Lindi Marc is the embodiment of an old soul millennial. She stays grounded to her definitive sound, the one she grew up on at the hands of her family and yesteryear gospel divas.
The Bulawayo-raised sensational, multi-talented and electrifying gospel songstress who sings in Shona, English and Ndebele drew attention three years ago with the release of the ever-popular Vhurai Nzira, her debut single and has been running ever since.
Along the way, she dropped her debut eight-track album Vhurai Nzira, with foot-stomping songs such as Amakhanka, Indonga, Uyeza, Ndiaderewo and Say Something God featuring Kross Marcellus Moses.
In addition, she has shared the stage with the likes of Minister Grace, Sandra Chirenje, Reward Judah, Keen, Tinashe, Ellison Tande, Jairos Mutambikwa and Vuyo Brown.
Since then, audiences in her now fulltime base South Africa and home country Zimbabwe have voiced a resounding affirmation for her gifts and talents and eagerly awaited the release of her sophomore, House Of Praise, which hit digital outlets last week.
Comprising of nine tracks including pre-released singles Faithfulness, Ndiwone, Tamirira Denga and Uthando, the new album sees the 35 years old singer shining as well as offering a prayer for the uncertain times the world is facing.
Thematically, the project cuts across tropes of faithfulness, steadfastness, truthfulness, and God’s love with sonic directions that draws influences from up-and-mid-tempo gospel sound old and new-age Christians are in love with.
Boasting features such as gospel juggernaut Khulekani Chili and Kross Marcellus Moses, the music reaches a variety of audiences and inspires movement from Lindi’s stand to the dance floor. Her light yet wide range of vocal ability is highlighted through the transformation of versatile songs from ballads to energetic inspiration.
All in all, House Of Praise marks three years of Lindi Marc connecting with her supporters through the delivery of uplifting gospel music. While some of the tracks might jar here and there, the hour-long offering is a showcase of her warmth and radiance as well as an apparent display of her acceptance of the biblical mandate to make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
